George Zimmerman was found not guilty, but it's hard to view him as a free man.
From FOX News:
George Zimmerman has been acquitted of all charges in the February 2012 shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Fla.The jury reached a verdict.
The jury of six women informed Judge Debra Nelson shortly before 10 p.m. local time Saturday that they had reached a verdict after deliberating for approximately 15 hours over two days.
Zimmerman, 29, blinked and barely smiled when the verdict was announced. After hearing the verdict, Judge Nelson told Zimmerman he was free to go.
Various thugs and the NAACP don't like it.
"Today, justice failed Trayvon Martin and his family," said Roslyn M. Brock, Chairman of the NAACP in a statement. "We call immediately for the Justice Department to conduct an investigation into the civil rights violations committed against Trayvon Martin. This case has re-energized the movement to end racial profiling in the United States."Good grief.
"We are outraged and heartbroken over today’s verdict," said Benjamin Todd Jealous, President and CEO of the NAACP, in another statement. "We stand with Trayvon’s family and we are called to act. We will pursue civil rights charges with the Department of Justice, we will continue to fight for the removal of Stand Your Ground laws in every state, and we will not rest until racial profiling in all its forms is outlawed."
I'm so sick of all the race-baiting.
Zimmerman has been acquitted. Of course, he must be relieved. That's better news for him than being found guilty and facing decades in prison. But Zimmerman is not free.
His life will be a living hell. Zimmerman haters can take some solace in that.

It's tragic that Trayvon Martin is dead. It's awful.
Another tragedy is that race-baiters - including Al Sharpton, the MSNBC crew, thousands on Twitter, and Obama - spread their poison and show no signs of letting up.
I can't stand the way some people are bent on racializing everything. It's so depressing that so many, including the president, insist on dragging us down. It's reprehensible.
I want justice for all, blacks and "white Hispanics" alike.
